Food Trucks + Fridays = TGIF

Is Friday your day to treat yourself and go out to lunch/dinner? Whether you have a big group or it’s just you and your friend/co-worker, skip the cliché restaurant and keep it fun & unique with food trucks!

Food Truck Fridays on Georgia Street are happening EVERY FRIDAY through August 24th from 11:30am – 1:30pm. Your favorite food trucks will be parked on Georgia St. between Capitol Ave. & Illinois St., and entry is FREE. Just grab your friends/co-workers and walk over!


First Friday Food Truck Festival is BACK at Old National Centre. The first Friday of every month, June – October, Indy food trucks take over the parking lot starting at 5pm to serve up good eats you can’t find anywhere else.



Indiana State Fair

What's summer without a trip to the Indiana State Fair for fair food, live music on the Free Stage, and Midway games? Midland walked away champions last year (well, 1 of them did) from the Rising Waters Midway game!

"The Greatest 17 Days of Summer" at the Indiana State Fair are August 3 - 19!



Devour Indy

It’s Indy’s city wide dining experience and it only happens TWICE a year—once in the summer, once in the winter. Participating restaurants are offering a three-course, value-priced meal August 20th – September 2nd this summer! No coupons or tickets necessary. Simply visit the restaurant you want to go to and ask for the Devour Indy menu!
